We left Svolvaer in beautiful weather heading the 15Nm to this scenic and famous fishingvillage further west. Still in mid August it´s sometimes infested with tourists but basically this is still an active fishingvillage with 500 inhabitants.
If arriving February to April hundreds of Norwegian fishingboats will occypy the whole village fishing "Skrei" which is cod during matingseason (hormones in the fish will make the meat more firm and delicious).
At the same time Henningsvaer has becom popular among artists and our Swedish painter Lars Lerin spent several yeras up here painting the landscape in diffrent seasons.
If reading this blog and aiming for Henningsvaer, don`t miss out the restaurant Lofotsmat . They prepare fantastic Kveite (Halibut) ,and don´t miss the Lofoten gallery with art from among others,Lars Lerin.
